October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate the connections that are happening all over the country between children and local food!
The National Farm to School Network advocated for the creation of National Farm to School Month and now organizes the annual celebration in partnership with dozens of partner organizations. National Farm to School Month was designated by Congress in 2010 to demonstrate the growing importance of farm to school programs as a means to improve child nutrition, support local economies and educate children about the origins of food.
In 2014, the National Farm to School Network partnered with more than 150 other organizations to promote Farm to School Month throughout October, reaching an audience of more than 800,000 people. You can read more about Farm to School Month 2014 in this blog post, and you can read all related blog posts by sorting content with the archive tags.
